Dahn Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis and Similar Conditions is an instructional yoga DVD designed to help multiple sclerosis (MS) patients gain energy and reduce the symptoms of MS with simple, mild, safe, and effective exercises. It includes gentle stretches, guided breathing, deep relaxation, and energy training. But Dahn Yoga for Multiple Sclerosis doesn't just focus only on the physical; it also teaches MS patients how to reduce their stress and how to gain mental focus, both of which are pivotal to fighting the effects of MS and similar conditions such as:
- Parkinson's disease
- recovery from surgery
This DVD will help you:
- Develop your inner core for strength and centeredness
- Discover the secret of emotional control and sustained focus
- Tap into your body's innate healing power for total revitalization
- Reduce muscle pain, spasticity, and fatigue while boosting your energy, managing your stress, and more!
The step-by-step MS yoga program on this DVD is primarily taught by certified Dahn Yoga instructor Dawn Quaresima. The DVD also features interviews with MS patients who have practiced Dahn Yoga. In addition to the basics of Dahn Yoga, both MS patients and other viewers will learn how to utilize sitting, standing, and floor positions, how to gain energy through simple breathing techniques, and how to quiet the mind for meditation.
This DVD was inspired by Cathy Downie, who began taking Dahn Yoga in 2005 and quickly discovered its healing effects as her MS symptoms, including fatigue and pain, began to lessen considerably. Working with both the MS Society and the non-profit Dahn Foundation, she began teaching Dahn Yoga classes to MS patients, which eventually culminated in her helping to develop this instructional DVD.
